Day 3

Today we spent some more time teaching the Songhai "onion boys" English. They are so eager (read desperate) to learn. We also got to give them walkmans and cassettes about Jesus in their native language. They were really excited about these gifts.
 so when we arrived at the school today there was a little baby there who was crying and kind of fussy...he's much younger than all of the other kiddos. So, Trey, being the kind person that he is, scooped the little guy up into his arms...and, was a little surprised to find the boy was bare-bottomed..
Today we also got a chance to talk to several groups of Songhai adults. We gave away CDs that contained the gospel message in the Zarma language and set up some appointments to show the Jesus film tomorrow. Thanks for your prayers!


  1. Okay, I changed my mind. Bring me an onion-boy and a bare-bottomed baby. Anna, thank you for sharing -- this is so exciting. I'm praying for you all day every day!

  2. I would love to have a bare bottomed baby too!!!
    the pictures are great!!! We are praying for all of you. I love you! Give them a kiss from your Mama!!!

    Be safe

    Love, Mama

  3. Love the updates. It's so great that you are teaching those guys English! What a practical ministry to them!

  4. ah! I'm sooo jealous I'm not there!
